BIOGRAPHICAL/HISTORICAL NOTE

Florien Giauque was born in Berlin, Ohio, May 11, 1843, to Augustus Giauque and Sophia Guillaume Giauque of Switzerland. He studied to become a teacher prior to the Civil War, but enlisted in the Union Army at its onset. Giauque served in Ohio 102nd Infantry, Co. H., under generals Grant, Buell, Sherman, Rosecrans and Thomas. He resumed his studies in education at the end of the war and accepted a teaching position after graduation in 1869. While in this position, he studied law under Justice Stanley Matthews. In 1875, Giauque opened a law office in Cincinnati, and soon went into partnership with Henry B. McClure. They maintained their partnership throughout Giauque’s legal career. Giauque was a prolific writer and editor of legal works. He contributed articles to periodicals and occasionally delivered lectures on various scientific topics.

He first traveled to Louisiana on a business trip in 1879. Shortly thereafter, he began investing in Louisiana real estate. At one time, he was one of the largest individual landowners in Sabine Parish. He sold 32,700 acres of land in Sabine Parish to the promoters of the Kansas City Southern Railroad for its construction.

Giauque was married to Mary Miller, the daughter of William H. Miller, an Ohio lawyer, and the granddaughter of John Woods, an Ohio politician and U. S. congressional representative. They had no children. Florien Giauque died in 1921.

SCOPE AND CONTENT NOTE

Florien Giauque papers pertain to his real estate operations in Louisiana. They consist of correspondence, accounts books, record books, bills, receipts, contracts, land conveyances and legal documents. Additionally, there are several plat maps and township maps, as well as state and parish maps. Papers document real estate transactions and provide detailed descriptions of land holdings and timber production in several central and northwestern Louisiana parishes, including Avoyelles, Calcasieu, DeSoto, Grant, Iberia, Iberville, Natchitoches, Rapides, Sabine, St. Landry, Vernon parishes. Papers also concern farming conditions and oil leases.

Correspondents include representatives of the logging and railroad industries and officials of the federal and state land offices. Many letters identify specific tracts of land in several Louisiana parishes for the purposes of logging and oil leases.

Subseries 2. Agents’ Correspondence, 1901-1908.

In their correspondence to Giauque, real estate agents and land managers report on real estate transactions, land claims, timber production estimates, and interested buyers and sellers of real estate. They also describe the soil and topography of land and its potential use and productivity.

II. Printed Material, 1896-1959, undated.

Subseries 1. Printed items, 1896-1915, undated.

Printed items include pamphlets written by Florien Giauque in which he describes topography, climate and natural resources in Sabine Parish in Something about Sabine Parish, Louisiana (Feb. 1896), and he offers his advice on buying land in Louisiana in Circular Letter to Some Persons Proposing to Buy Louisiana Land (Sept. 1907). The publication Omnibus Book (1915) provides the ownership history of specific tracts of land in Avoyelles, Calcasieu, DeSoto, Grant, Iberia, Iberville, Natchitoches, Rapides, Sabine, St. Landry, Vernon parishes between Jan. 1901 to Jan. 1915.
